Welcome Back Student Marketplace

CDHA welcomes all dental hygiene students back to school by inviting them to a student marketplace. There will be prizes to win and attendees can meet CDHA's President and sponsors.

This year's event was on Friday, October 15, 2021, and was FREE for all students.

Student House of Representatives

The Student House of Representatives (SHOR) takes place prior to the House of Delegates (HOD). 

SHOR and HOD is an awesome experience for every student to start their professional networking process and learn how CDHA conducts its annual business, which shapes the future of their profession!  


Student Poster Competition

Each spring, the Student Poster Competition provides hygiene students a fun and creative way to exhibit their innovative ideas and unique talents. Through an engaging, spirited contest, students each year use this opportunity to present research and information that reflects an area of dental hygiene significant to them, to their patients and peers.

CDHA collaborates with the California Dental Association (CDA) in judging poster sessions and awarding cash prizes at the close of the Spring Scientific Session. Abstracts of the 1st place posters are published in both the CDHA and CDA journals.
